This is an example of a reply to another classmate Hello Steven, Abortion is a great concern in our nation and the fact that political parties are not sharing the same point of view creates a major conflict. According to the CDC since 1969, they have been conducting abortion surveillance to document the number and characteristics of women obtaining legal induced abortions in the United States (Jatlaoui et al., 2016, p. 1-41).The most difficult part of this societal problem is that the prevalence of abortion is seen in adolescents, and it is lower among women aged 25–39 years (Jatlaoui et al., 2016, p. 1-41). The other problem is that a great majority of women seeking abortions are economically disadvantaged with no means to care for a child (Upadhyay, Weitz, Jones, Barar, & Foster, 2014).In conclusion I believe that our government needs to come together to solve this problem by educating not only the individuals in the schools setting but to use the one tool that brings this population together social media to raise awareness of the risk factors involved in having an abortion.ReferenceJatlaoui, T.
